Description:
The 5900 Road was constructed in the mid 1970ís, and it is assumed that the 900 mm culvert located at 35+600 km was installed at that time. This S3 stream drains to Adrian Lake which drains into Merton Lake and does not appear to have had any work completed on it in the past to improve its ability to pass fish. In addition to the fish passage issue, the site was reviewed by an RP Bio in 2007 and scored 42, using the FPCI scoring matrix. With its proximity to Lake it was felt that it should be a high priority for replacement. The stream in question contained Rainbow Trout, Mountain Whitefish, Dolly Varden and Burbot.
